Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - C16418-104 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the CURT Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit with the gloss finish rails for the Chevrolet GMC trucks. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 1999 to 2007 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra 1500 and 2500 models with either the six and a half foot bed or the eight foot bed. Now on any custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this will work for your applications. Now these custom brackets right here are designed to mount beneath your truck bed. They do provide the attachment points for your fifth wheel rails to connect to. These are custom fit brackets.

They are designed to mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame so that will minimize the amount of drilling that's required. The installation time is cut in half when compared with your universal bracket systems. Now the base rails, these are what will attach to these mounting brackets and they are what sit in the truck bed. It allows the installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. These are visible above bed rails. If you notice on these, they do have a nice gloss finish to them.

Now this part includes everything I have laid out here on the table, includes the two above bed base rails, the two mounting brackets, one for each side, includes the electrical box mounting bracket, all the mounting hardware you need and also a nice set of detailed instructions for installing everything. Now this kit will work with fifth wheel hitches from CURT, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley. That should do it for the review on the CURT Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit with the gloss finish rails for the Chevrolet GMC trucks.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

  • Is PullRite SuperGlide 4100 Compatible with Curt Base Rail Kit for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
    The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit is compatible with your PullRite SuperGlide 4100 model but you do need the adapter 4409 from PullRite for them to fit together. I reached out to PullRite and was told this directly. The Curt has custom base rails which will mount directly to existing holes in the frame of your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 so no drilling into your truck frame is needed. Please note that the kit # C16418-104 you referenced is a fit for older GMC Sierra 2500 models and...

  • Can Pullrite Superglide 2900 Install In Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit For Chevy Silverado
    Yes, the Pullrite Superglide 2900 18K will fit the industry standard Curt fifth wheel rails part # C16418-104 without any adapters. The Pullrite Superglide 2900 is one of Pullrites Superglide hitches that fit the industry standard rails. The other Superglides that fit the industry standard rails are Superglide 2700 (16K) and the Superglide 2300 (24K). The custom brackets that come with the kit fit a 1999 to 2007 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra 1500 and 2500 models with either the six...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2020 Chevy 2500HD Silverado Short Bed
    I have a solution that fits your 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD short bed to allow you to install a fifth wheel hitch but the Curt rail kit that you referenced does not fit. In 2020 Chevy made some big changes to their trucks so the fits of rail kits had to be upgraded. Right now (October 2019) for a fifth wheel solution we have a really great option with the B and W Companion hitch rail kit part # BWGNRK1020-5W which allows you to then use the Companion slider hitch part # BWRVK3400-5W.

  • Is Demco 16K Hijacker Ultra Slide 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with Curt Mounting Rails
    The Demco Hijacker Premier Series Ultra Slide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch like # DM6076P-UL-16K is compatible with industry standard fifth wheel rails such as those manufactured by Draw-Tite, Valley, Demco, Curt, Hidden Hitch, Reese and others, so the hitch will work perfectly with the Curt Mounting Bracket/Bed rail kit. If you have a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500, you'll want to use the # C16411-204 bracket/rail kit, as the bracket kit you'd looked at only fits the 1999-2010 Sierra 2500 models.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit for 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 to Use Curt A16 Hitch
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt # C16418-104 is designed for older model Chevy/GMC trucks. Instead you'll want to use the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck - Carbide Finish # C16429-204, which is a confirmed fit on the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 (both short and long bed) and will work with your Curt A16 hitch. I've linked an installation video that you may want to have a look at if you're going to be installing this yourself.

  • Fifth Wheel and Installation Kit Recommendations for 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The exact 5th wheel hitch set up you'll need will depend on and vary with the bed length of your truck. For a 5-1/2 foot bed, you'll either need a stationary hitch along with a Reese Sidewinder or use a Demco Hijacker Autoslide, part # DM8550040 and install kit, part # DM8552027-71. The Autoslide is definitely the easier to use option, and would also be easier to install. For a 6-1/2 foot bed, you'll still need a slider but you won't need as much travel as provided by the hitch...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Brackets and Base Rail Kit for 2008 GMC Sierra 2500
    Yes they do! I can confirm the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC # C16418-104 do fit your 2008 GMC Sierra 2500. These are the same as the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC # C16418-204, with the only difference between the two parts being the finish of the base rails: - Gloss Black Finish: Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC - Gloss Finish # C16418-104 - Carbide Black Finish: Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC - Carbide...

  • 2015 Silverado 2500HD
    Yes, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16418-104 will fit your 2015 Silverado 2500 Short bed. It is compatible with all standard fifth wheel hitches. For short bed applications, I would also recommend using a sliding Fifth Wheel to provide better maneuverability. # C16536 is a great example in the 20k range, but be sure to match the Fifth Wheel you choose to your specific towing needs.

  • Does B and W Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit into Curt Above Bed Style Fifth Wheel Rails
    B and W has their fixed Patriot hitch # BWRVK3255 and slider Patriot part # BWRVK3270 which utilizes same head design as Companion hitches that is designed to fit the Curt rail kit # C16418-104 you referenced but an actual Companion hitch would not fit as they are designed to fit into the gooseneck ball hole of a B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch like the # BWGNRK1067 that fits your 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic.

  • Is a PullRite SuperGlide 4100 Compatible with Curt Base Rail Kit for 2018 GMC Canyon Long Bed?
    I have a solution for you if your Pullrite 4100 mounts in the industry standard base rails to attach a 5th wheel, but because the Curt # C16418-104 is a custom mounting kit for full size GMC/Chevy trucks, it will not be a fit on your 2018 GMC Canyon. Additionally, there is not a custom fit rail kit available for your Canyon since they were not designed with 5th wheel towing in mind. You would instead need to use a universal base rail kit like the Reese # RP30035 to provide your truck with...

  • Will Curt 5th Wheel Installation Kit Fit 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 With Short Bed
    Yes, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Chevy/GMC # C16418 will absolutely fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a short bed. This bracket kit is also the best option for your truck because it does not require any drilling into your frame rails to install. This install kit does require the use of Curt Fifth Wheel Base Rails # C16204 (Carbide Black Finish) or # C16104 (Gloss Finish), both of which will mount a Curt 20K sliding fifth wheel hitch. These parts also come as...

  • Fifth Wheel Install Bed Rail/Frame Bracket Kit for 2003 GMC Sierra 2500
    For the correct fifth wheel bed rail/frame bracket kit for your 2003 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton, use the # C16418-104 from Curt. The # C16411-104 you had looked at fits later-model Sierra/Silverados, and wouldn't work for your truck. If you need to install a trailer connector in the truck bed, I'd recommend going with part # C56000. I've linked to install videos for the bracket/rail kit as well as the wiring I recommended.

    I would recommend going with the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, item # RP50064-58, for your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, because it is the best selling kit, and replacement parts are easily available if needed. We have instructions, see link, and an installation video that should be helpful when installing the kit on your truck, see link. Both the Reese kit and the Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, item # C16418-104, are designed for capacities exceeding the towing capacity of...

  • Will Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16418-204 Fit a RBW Lil Rocker
    Yes, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16418-204 will fit with a RBW Lil Rocker fifth wheel hitch. The difference between that rail kit and the part # C16418-104 is the finish on the rails. The 104 means glossy paint and the 204 means like a matte finish.

  • Parts Needed to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2003 GMC Sierra 6-1/2 ft Bed
    Since you have a 6-1/2 foot bed you are going to need a sliding hitch like the Curt E5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Roller # 16516 that you referenced. For the correct installation kit to install this hitch in the bed of your 2003 GMC Sierra you will need a Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16418-104. Now for wiring to allow you to install a trailer 7-way in the bed of your truck as well you would want a Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness # 20110. I attached an installation...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Installation Kit for a 2005 Chevy Silverado and a Husky 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    No matter which model or bed size (excluding 5-1/2 foot beds) your 2005 Chevy Silverado is and has, you will be able to use the Curt 5th Wheel Installation Kit, # C16418-204 or # C16418-104. These rails are compatible with Husky 5th wheel trailer hitches. I have included a link to the installation details below. If you look at page 3 of the instructions, it shows a diagram of where the rails will need to be placed. On a long box, the rear side of the forward most rail should be 52.375...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, Install Kit, and Transmission Cooler Recommendations for a 2010 GMC Sierra
    As long as your 2010 GMC Sierra 2500HD has a towing capacity great enough to tow your Montana 5th wheel trailer then you should not have any problems towing through the mountains. I would recommend a transmission cooler given the weight of the trailer and the terrain you will be pulling it through. Beyond that, make sure you follow the owners manual recommendations for towing and you should not have a problem. If you like the Curt hitches, you can use installation kit # C16418-104, and...

  • Is a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Needed for a 2007 Chevy Silverado with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    On a truck with a short bed, even with an extended pin box you will most likely need a slider hitch to make tight turns without the trailer running into the truck cab. The Curt slider is going to give you 12 inches of travel for greater clearance when making tight turns. The Curt slider, # 16516, is a good hitch with a 4-Way pivoting head and round tube slider. Make sure that the 16,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity and 4,000 pound pin weight capacity is enough for your trailer. For...

  • Hitch and Install Kit for 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 for 6000 lb Fifth Wheel
    The Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Hitch you referenced, part # 16516 would be a good choice for your 2001 Sierra if it is equipped with the 6-1/2 foot bed. The E5 features a 4-way pivoting head and a non binding round tube slider. If you have the 8 foot bed, use the non-sliding model, part # C16115. I would also recommend the Curt fifth wheel install kit, part # C16418-104. This is a custom install kit that typically takes half the time to install as a universal kit like part # C16100.
